Weekly Photo Challenge: Grand


I’ve had the great fortune to have been to many “grand” places around the world so this was a hard challenge to decide on.  I finally decided to expand on some previous photos I’ve posted from the western US and specifically the area around Moab, Utah including the Arches and Canyonlands National parks.

This next one is from the Canyonlands park.  A spectacular setting with amazing panoramic vistas…..

The last one for today is from the Colorado River gorge – a very pleasant drive to enter the area from the East along Hwy 128.

    • Jeff – Thanks! – A different variety of grand than you have there in NH but pretty impressive in its own right.
